FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

You Don’t Need A CMO prides itself on transparency and clarity. We want to be on the same page as our clients before writing the first line of copy or running the first ad. These are our most frequently asked questions.

How do you work with clients? (timing, meetings)

We are a very hands on team; generally, this involves us us sharing a slack channel with you and being available as we work 24-7 – we’re equally excited to be working with you.

On all packages, you get UNLIMITED one-on-one’s with our CEO, unlimited slack access., a monthly check in with your account manager, weekly video reports on campaign management, and full access to our backend via the newly updated (2020) client portal.

We’re big on automations and tech, but can adapt our style (email/phone calls) if you prefer. We’ve been there.

Is there a pay-per-performance option?

Yes, there is. We can opt to build campaigns with a $2500 set up fee and a negotiated per lead price and per close price.
Warning – it tends to be pretty advantageous to us! But up to you the client, ultimately. We’ll hold you to it.

What if we aren't satisfied or don't reach the results?

Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan – delays on our end, your end, even industry constraints and obstacles (Like CoVid!) we never would have anticipated.

We have pages and pages of documentation to address various scenarios – we don’t give up on clients. Often, we’ve developed new services or products to address clients where things haven’t gone according to plan.

That being said, our vetting process is very important and the more info you can get us in advance of starting, the more accurate the estimates we can get you.

Do you do design or copy, or do I need to hire other people?

Our full list of services are covered on our solutions pages – in general, we do not do lower level tasks like design unless they are mission critical; we do have relevant team members, but we highly recommend you utilize one of the expert-vetted freelancers in our network.

Why do you work with startups?

Our founders built their marketing skills as founders of tech companies; addicted to the rush of crazy growth, working on You Don’t Need A CMO gives us the opportunity to do this 10x the degree at once.

Do you take an ownership stake in companies?

In certain cases. After an in-depth audit; we are able to offset the upgrade cost from Growth -> CMO by taking an ownership stake in your company. You must have significant growth potential; % is based off last fundraising valuation + a 12 month vesting period for YDNACMO.

You’re an early-stage company with under 30 employees.
You run a lean, mean, rapid growth tech company.
You want fast, exponential growth.
You already have basic functions (design, social media) covered and you just need strategic direction.
You already have product-market fit.
You have enough funding or revenue to support an investment in marketing.

We're not a good fit if

You’re struggling to pay the bills.
You need cash to support basic operations.
You can’t afford a 2-3 month burn to scale your marketing apparatus.
You haven’t done due diligence and don’t understand your marketing fundamentals, and don’t have product market fit.
You have an unmotivated, amateur team.
